Soroban and Anzan

Well, I’m interested in do additions using soroban, but visualizing in my mind. I already can visualize a little bit and do additions of 2 numbers by 2 numbers. Perhaps, if my mainly goal is just to practice mental calculation, only in my mind, could I stop using the physical Soroban and just use my mind?

Yeah, why not?

I STRONGLY recommend you to use physical Soroban at least for 1.5 year if you want to do basic Anzan.

But can’t I work on my visualization while doing that?
And why is it necessary to do for 1,5 year?

The brain “must” absorb like a sponge. The better the training, the better the results.

And, of course, better even if youre younger than 18.
